Homemade Fajita Seasoning is the ULTIMATE seasonings for Tacos, Fajitas and MORE: a blog about the fajita seasoning mix with the many possible uses. There are so many recipes for fajita meals out there, but I think homemade seasoning is the best way to go. I have been making my own seasoning for a few years now and I can’t imagine ever going back to store bought fajita seasonings again.
Taste is more important than the appearance . Cooking can be an art, and a chef knows how to make food beautiful. But taste is what matter most. Now, if you put something on your plate and it looks great, but it tastes awful, that’s a huge failure. But if it looks awful but tastes great, you are still doing good work.
The look of food also changes when you cook it. So don’t worry too much about presentation until you try the recipe first.
I am always looking for new recipes to try out in my kitchen and some of my favorites come from friends and family (and sometimes bloggers). If you have a favorite recipe or even just a random idea for one that you want to share with me please send them along as I’d love to try
The fajita seasoning mix is a great spice and marinade recipe to make at home. It is much cheaper than buying the pre-made mixes. I use it for chicken, steak and shrimp. I really like this for beef fajitas and tacos, but it works with other meats as well.

If you have ever gone to Taco Bell, you have tried their Fajita Seasoning. It is the seasoning mix that allows you to get your taco on the “Naked” (without sauce) or as a Fajita, and it is absolutely delicious.
It all started when I went through the Taco Bell drive-through one day and ordered one of their little steak tacos only because they were $0.10 cheaper than their regular tacos. I expected them to taste like a plain steak taco, but they tasted so much better than that! I asked the cashier what was in those tacos and she said that they are fajitas.
The cashier informed me that Taco Bell sold the Fajita Seasoning Mix for $1.29 for an 8 oz package at the store closest to my house, so I decided to make my own Homemade Fajita Seasoning Mix at home for less than half of what it costs at Taco Bell! Now I can have all of that goodness whenever I want it without having to go out to eat.
